This is the worst of outcomes for Laura. She'd rather be in the hospital than with her mother. Authorities were repeatedly and consistantly told that she's a suicide risk if she's with her mother.
The strategy now is for Laura to take every opportunity to leave her mother's and tell authorities that she is not safe and wants to be put into foster care.
Sigh. She's a bright girl and I hope that things do work out for her. We'll be exploring options for helping out.
